In recent news statistics revealed some shocking figures about how much food we waste in Britain.
With almost 50% of the total amount of food thrown away in the UK comes from our homes. According to research, each year we throw away 7 million tonnes of food and drink, more than half of which could have been eaten.
One of the main reasons we tend to throw away food is that we have a habit if preparing too much, but one way to avoid wasting the extra food is to store leftovers.
Not only will storing left overs have a positive environmental impact, but it will also save you lots of money.
The foods we tend to waste the most include salad and vegetables, which both can be easily stored for days later.
Prevent food waste and save money in your home by using the correct packaging to store your leftovers.
Storm Trading stock items such Microwave Food Containers with Lids, which allows you to preserve your leftovers for a few extra days. These containers are ideal for you to take leftovers into work as you can pop the container (without the lid) straight into the microwave. The containers also come in 3 different sizes allowing you to store different portion sizes.
If its cold food such as potato salads, fresh salad or other chilled meals, Aluminum Foil containers are ideal. The foil containers are available in 2 different sizes and come with lids.
